Bayley and Shayna Baszler ends in a "no contest"

Sasha Banks went down the entrance aisle looking depressed.  She barely looked at Bayley.  After Baszler's entrance, Nia Jax entrance song plays and she walks down to the base of the ring.   It did not take long during the match for Jax to interfere and drag Baszler out of the ring.  Both Baszler and Jax scuffled until their eyes locked on the tag team champions.  As of now, WWE is teasing the idea for Jax and Baszler to become tag team partners.

Aleister Black was the special guest.  However, Black kicked Owens a couple of times and left the ring.  Unclear on his take on all this, but it may be an added match for Payback.  More to follow between Black and Owens.
